How Kelvin Benjamin, Marcell Dareus trades impact Bills' 2018 draft picks

With two trades in the last few days, the Bills added a draft pick from Jacksonville in the Marcell Dareus deal and then sent two draft picks to Carolina to acquire wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

The Bills continue to have a number of picks at the top of the draft, even after sending a third-rounder (and a seventh-rounder) to Carolina for Benjamin.

The third-round pick is the Bills' original pick, and not the third-round pick acquired from Philadelphia in the Ronald Darby trade; the seventh-round pick that is going to Carolina is the Los Angeles Chargers' pick that was acquired in the Cardale Jones trade.
